Mom Thoughts

McCain continued, "Having Liberty is like observing my entire heart live and exist outside of my body. She is a little wildcat ~ beautiful, strong, alert, already so full life and spirit... I only wish I had done this sooner. Thank you to my love Ben for giving me this gift and taking the leap on this wonderful and petrifying adventure together. I love our little family and I have never felt so blessed, present and grateful."

She added, "This is the first time since my Dad passed that the part of my heart that broke off and left with him no longer feels missing...."

The Meaning of Life

"I am not a poet nor an artist," McCain began a December 2020 Instagram post, "so I cannot fully express the ecstasy of motherhood. However, I will say having a daughter answers every existential and ontological question a human being confronts in this wild life. Ben and I have been so indescribably blessed and experienced nothing but an embarrassment of bliss since having Liberty.🗽♥️🇺🇸"
